Trash to Treasure

I bought a pack of papers at Michael’s and received this junk mail envelop and challenged myself to make a card with them.

I used the envelop to create a layer. I cut the various colors into strips and ran them thru the Cuttlebug in assorted EFs. I used Spellbinders Jumbo scalloped Border Petites to round off each strip, sanded each and adhered them to the card front. Not having wide enough brown left I used two narrow strips then hid the center cut with a bit of grosgrain ribbon. The flower was hand cut from the same paper layered on to some silk leaves. The crochet flower was another blog candy win. The sentiment is an old SU stamp.

Thanks for visiting today. I appreciate your comments.
